Ottawa to recognize Libyan rebels

Big. Announcement

Parliament votes 294-1 to extend military mission in Libya until end of September JOE LOFARO

Libyans in Ottawa applauded news that Canada will officially recognize a key rebel group, the National Transitional Council, as the legitimate government of Libya. “It’s good news for me, it’s good news for every Libyan,” said Malik Taghdi, an Ottawa resident whose parents live in Tripoli. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird made the announcement yesterday in Parliament and said the federal government will “happily” arrange meetings with members of the NTC. Marwan Abouon, a member of the Canadian Libyan Council, said he also supports Canada’s stance on the NTC, which includes Libyan lawyers and judges, as it tries to unseat the Libyan dictator.

“The NTC is trying to remove Gadhafi from his position, and Canada recognizing them. I think it’s the best thing.” MALIK TAGHDI, OTTAWA RESIDENT

“I think more highly of it because now more and more countries are recognizing it because they see they could actually do something,” he said. Representing the handful or so of Moammar Gadhafi supporters in Ottawa, Walid el Kauol said he disagreed with Canada siding with the NTC. “Libya is for Libyans, not for Canada, not for NATO, not for anybody else. I think that Canada is the best country in the world for democracy, but I don’t know why the government (would) do that,” said el Kauol.

An artist’s rendering of the proposed building.

Disputed condo gets OK Ottawa’s planning committee has given the green light to a controversial downtown condo that has irked some neighbours because of its height. The committee approved a zoning amendment to allow Lamb Development Corp. to build a 17-storey condo at Gloucester and Lyon streets if full council grants final approval. But the approval only came after committee members clashed over where the city should be adding more homes — in the suburbs or downtown. Diane Holmes, the councillor for the area but not a voting committee member, argued the building should be only 12 storeys, which would put less demand on parking and transportation in the area. Her argument didn’t hold with Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais. “We need to build tall buildings downtown because we’re spending money down there to build infrastructure to support it,” he said. The condos will be close to bus rapid transit and the future site of light rail — one of the reasons the developers argue that building a high-density condo there is a good idea. JESSICA SMITH

City eases up on water ban Residents permitted to water plants, fill kiddie pools, use hose to clean green bin No fines issued since water ban was initiated, says mayor The City of Ottawa helped ease the effects of the outdoor water ban in the south end by announcing yesterday that residents can now use city water outdoors one day per week until July 15. Barrhaven, Manotick, and Riverside South residents can visit the city website and enter their postal code to learn on which day their zone is permitted to use outdoor water. The outdoor water ban kicked in on April 27, but since then, Mayor Jim Watson has announced that repairs to the Woodroffe Avenue water main are

While topping up pools is not permitted, the city has developed a top-up program to assist owners of private pools who have lost water during the summer. The city said drinking water is still safe during the ban as long as people respect the rules and only use outdoor water on their designated day.

Engineering students teach MPs about transparency Transparency would put Canada’s $5-billion foreign-aid budget to better use, Engineers Without Borders says JESSICA SMITH/METRO

Air Canada workers walk off the job JOE LOFARO/METRO

Air Canada customer-service workers walked off the job yesterday, but the job action could be short-lived with the federal government warning it may table back-to-work legislation. About 50 Air Canada customer-service agents walked a picket line at the Ottawa International Airport as talks between the air carrier and Canadian Auto Workers union failed. The Ottawa workers were among 3,800 Air Canada employees to walk off the job nationally. The main issue of contention is pensions, the workers say. JOE LOFARO

@METRONEWS.CA

About 20 students with Engineers Without Borders took to Parliament Hill yesterday to lobby the government to clearly report how it spends almost $5 billion a year on foreign aid. The group wants Canada to join the International Aid Transparency Initiative, an agreement among foreign-aid donors such as the United Kingdom, the World Bank and the European Commission, to report foreign-aid spending publicly and in a common format. They say it would save

“I’ve always been a fan of Engineers Without Borders. We’re trying hard to shine a light on transparency. They’re saying foreign aid needs to be accountable, creative and transparent.… I think some of the things we’ve done as a government are definitely moving in that direction.” CONSERVATIVE MP DEAN ALLISON, FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN

money by reducing red tape and would help recipient countries keep track of the money they get. “If Canada is providing aid, they’re providing it to different NGOs as well as to the government directly or through multilateral institutions,” said Ian Froude, a recent graduate of Memori-

al University and staff member with EWB. “The current government (of the recipient country) can’t track where that money is going or where it’s coming from, and (transparency) enables them to better understand.” Another problem is the volatility of foreign aid

when a donor government, like Canada, changes leadership or the government’s priorities change, said engineering undergraduate student Erin Flanagan. “What that means is recipients can’t anticipate three to five years down the line what kind of financial allocations they can expect, and they aren’t able to integrate into their financial plan,” she said. “The International Aid Transparency Initiative would aim to fix that by publishing financial projections on aid information.” The students met with MPs from the Conservative, New Democratic and Liberal parties.

Mayor Jim Watson is flying to China this morning on a mission to promote Ottawa as a destination for Chinese tourists. Human rights won’t be on the agenda, he said. “Everyone has a responsibility for human rights, but I think it’s best left at the federal level, which has a primary responsibility for foreign affairs,” he said. “We’re not there to grandstand on an issue that I don’t have direct responsibility for.” Watson said he spoke with Foreign Affairs about the trip and he was advised that he could dis-

cuss how the Chinese government can improve its record on transparency and corruption by offering advice “from our perspective, on what we have tried do from a transparency point of view.” Watson has been building a relationship with Beijing, Ottawa’s “sister city,” since the late 1990s and he has visited the country twice before, he said. Fourteen thousand Chinese tourists visited Ottawa in 2009, Watson said. In 2010, Ottawa became an “approved destination” by the Chinese government. By 2013, Watson is hoping 25,000 Chinese tourists visit the city each year. Watson’s portion of the trip will cost approximately $7,000, paid for by the city. JESSICA SMITH

Ashes to ashes, dust to art on canvas

CONTRIBUTED

Artist uses animal furs, feathers and human ashes In two years, he has used the remains of 7 bodies You could say Marc Seguin has a twisted mind. He’s written a story for an upcoming cookbook in which the last survivor on earth eats herself to death, and, perhaps in a nod to Orwell’s Animal Farm, is consumed by pigs who create their own world. The Quebec artist is also fond of using dead animals in his paintings, including their fur and feathers. Now, with his international star rising, particularly in New York, Seguin is turning heads with the most recent material on his palette: human ashes. When a friend offered him the ashes of his mother, he spent some time deciding what to do with them. “It’s the symbolism of using human ashes that’s important here — of life, leaving a trace.” He is using them not to paint posthumous por-

traits, but rather to do what he is celebrated for — commenting fearlessly on the CONTRIBUTED

state of the world and its repeated breakdowns. Seguin chose bombedout European churches from the Second World

War. The images are stark. Gray and black. Collapsed roofs. Ruined arches. Splashes of blood red. Seguin’s treatment of churches extends to life in general. “The human experience has been a failure,” he says. “We don’t live long enough to correct things over time.” The use of ash in painting is rather simple. Since cremation isn’t perfect, he has to pick out pieces of bone, leaving only the fine powder. To that he adds his wet brush. The canvas is moistened so it swells. And when it dries it locks in the pigment. Seguin says he has received no criticism for using ash. For instance, organic elements such as animal blood are still used to make reds. Word-ofmouth has even led people to donate to his art.

Crime crackdown in Mohawk communities GRAHAM HUGHES/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Police launched a massive anti-drug crackdown yesterday involving about 500 officers, including the RCMP, at Mohawk communities around Montreal. A number of searches and arrests have been made in Kanesatake, Akwesasne and Oka. Police said the operation involved organized crime and drug-trafficking at 50 sites. Seizures primarily involved marijuana.

The raids targeted suspects in Kanesatake, a community bedevilled in the past by violent responses to outside police forces operating in its borders. Kanesatake was the site of the Oka Crisis, the historic 1990 standoff between police and Mohawk protestors. But Grand Chief Paul Nicholas said this time many members of the community were involved in

WILD RIDE NEARLY OVER JEFF HODSON

There was a feeling of queasiness in Vancouver yesterday in the wake of the Canucks’ disappointing 5-2 loss Monday against Boston. It’s a nauseated, greenabout-the-gills feeling brought on by the stomach-curdling emotional highs and lows of this roller-coaster series. People seem exhausted emotionally (physically in the case of their beer arms) and are looking forward to the series’ culmi-

JEFF HODSON IS MANAGING EDITOR OF METRO VANCOUVER

There are signs one of the major political sores that has inflamed the Afghan war in Kandahar is finally starting to crust over. The Karzai government is moving cautiously to ease tension among the tribes, and some of the warring factions seem to be quietly agreeing to put differences aside. If it holds, the painful balancing act of competing interests could lead to a significant lowering of the political temperature in the insurgency-plagued south. What was evident, but perhaps not widely grasped by Canadians, was that the violence that engulfed the province in 2006 was more than just the Taliban attempting to reclaim their heartland. “I don’t think we understood a number of things when we came in here,�

said Howard Coombs, a special adviser to the Canadian task force commander. “I’m not faulting anyone, it’s just the way it was.� Canadian troops and diplomats were plopped down squarely in the middle of a narco-drug war and a civil war between rival Pashtun tribes, some of which were engaged in blood feuds dating back decades, even centuries. Political divisions within the confusing jumble of the tribes contributed just as much to the fighting as the fundamentalist undertow of the insurgency, Coombs said. The government in Kabul was notorious for cherrypicking support among friendly clans and marginalizing others. The Karzais, members of the Popalzai

Gay marriage upheld in Calif. Scholars didn’t expect decision to be overturned Judge cites gender- and race-based precedents A U.S. judge yesterday upheld a gay judge’s ruling to strike down California’s same-sex marriage ban, noting that his fellow jurist could not be presumed to have a personal stake in the case just because he was in a long-term relationship with another man. Chief U.S. District Judge James Ware said former Chief Judge Vaughn Walker had no obligation to divulge whether he wanted to marry his own gay partner before he declared last year that voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. Ware called it the first case in which a judge’s

same-sex relationship had led to calls for disqualification. The ruling does not settle the legal fight over the same-sex marriage ban known as Proposition 8. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is considering whether Walker properly concluded that denying gays and lesbians the right to marry violates their rights to due process and equal protection. Ware cited previous cases dealing with women and minority judges in concluding that his predecessor had acted appropriately. “The sole fact that a federal judge shares the same

circumstances or personal characteristics with other members of the general public, and that the judge could be affected by the outcome of a proceeding in the same way that other members of the general public would be affected, is not a basis for either recusal or disqualification,” he wrote. Lawyers for backers of the ban argued that Walker should have recused himself or disclosed his relationship. Walker publicly revealed after he retired in February that he is in a 10year relationship with a man. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

These were the largest protests since President Ali Abdullah Saleh went abroad to treat injuries suffered in an attack. Yemen remains locked in a power struggle between the president’s allies and tribesmen, who demand an end to his nearly 33-year rule.

Honda sees profit plunge Automaker blames quake and tsunami Analyst says Honda hit harder than rivals because it is a leaner company with low inventory

Workers check Honda Accord Tourers at Honda Motor Co.’s Saitama factory in Sayama, north of Tokyo.

Honda’s profit for the fiscal year is expected to plunge 63.5 per cent as vehicles sales slipped amid a parts shortage caused by the quake and tsunami in northeastern Japan. Honda Motor Co. gave the forecast yesterday, more than a month later than usual. Like other Japanese automakers, the maker of the Odyssey

minivan and the Fit compact needed more time to assess the aftermath of the March 11 disaster. But Honda said vehicle production in Japan is expected to be back at nearly normal levels by later this month, and production in regions outside of Japan is expected to be back up to pre-disaster levels in August or September.

Honda said it will try to make up for lost time and deliver more vehicles, but it is expecting its global vehicle sales for the fiscal year to drop 6 per cent on year to 3.3 million vehicles. Honda had sold 3.51 million vehicles worldwide the previous fiscal year. Given the devastation from the March 11 9.0-

magnitude earthquake and the tsunami that it unleashed, analysts say the recovery at Japanese automakers has been remarkable. Still, all the automakers are suffering, and the damage has continued because key auto-parts suppliers were located in the northeastern region. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

APOLOGY ON BEHALF OF ALL MEN JUST SAYIN’ ...

Is it just me or do other guys feel compelled to apologize for Anthony Weiner the wiener? PAUL SULLIVAN If I were a woman, I would METRO think Weiner the wiener is the greatest single argument for asexual reproduction ever. I would rather give birth to spores than have that jerk’s baby. But it’s too late. His wife of one year, Huma Abedin, who is Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, has been lugging the spawn of Weiner around the world, advising the U.S. secretary of state on matters of global concern while her wiener husband has been sending pictures of his biceps and his John Thomas to porn stars he met on the Internet. Now the U.S. congressman has “taken a leave of absence” from the House of Representatives as he goes into treatment. Meanwhile, his wife and soon-to-be-born child are still out there trying to get Libya under control and fielding the fallout from the stupid husband “If I were a tricks back home. Everyone says he should woman, I would resign. Even Barack Obama think Weiner the says “If I were him, I’d wiener is the resign.” Weiner the wiener? Think about it. This is the greatest single guy who not so long ago argument was touted as the next mayfor asexual or of New York City, the Great Democratic Hope. reproduction Now, he only qualifies as ever.” the Great Democratic Dope, following in the footsteps of the legendary Eliot Spitzer, the former Great Democratic Dope, who now has his own talk show. Even Spitzer says Weiner the wiener should resign, citing “a flaw in his judgment, in his belief, even up to that point that he could somehow continue to deceive.” Spitzer, also married, secretly cavorted with prostitutes at taxpayer expense while attorney general of the state of New York. Well, at least he is an expert on flaws in judgment. Obviously, Weiner is going through the motions of contrition to try to save his sorry buns of steel while waiting for the talk show offers to come through. If you’re a man (any kind of a man), when you compare Weiner the wiener with Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who is courageously trying to regain the power of speech after having been shot in the head while doing her job, it’s enough to make you turn in the keys to the F-150 and go back to human school. So if he won’t do the right thing, I will. I apologize to his wife because she seems like a nice person who doesn’t deserve to be married to the biggest (smallest?) wiener on the planet, and I apologize to women everywhere who have to be totally fed up with men who haven’t got a lick of sense, yet occupy positions of authority while they (the women, that is) continue to get the short end of the ... stick.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning WASHINGTON. Scientists

are predicting the sun is heading into an unusual and extended super quiet mode. Around 2020, sunspots may disappear for years, maybe decades. Scientists say there is nothing to worry about. Effects from a calmer sun are mostly good. There would be fewer disruptions of satellites and power systems. And it might mean a little less increase in global warming. It has happened before, but not for a couple of centuries. Scientists at a solar physics conference in New Mexico revealed their prediction based on sunspot activity, magnetic field strength and a disappearing solar jet stream. The prediction is specifically aimed at the solar cycle starting in 2020, but experts say the sun already has been unusually quiet for about four years.

WEIRD NEWS

Coming soon: Follow God on Twitter Too busy to get to church to pray? A Romanian company is offering believers an online service enabling them to send prayers to priests who will read them out

during church services. Romanian Orthodox Christians customarily write down prayers in church, which are then given to priests who read them out for a small fee. The prayers are traditionally for health, good exam results, happy marriages, and the forgiveness of sins. Orthodox believers can now pay $1.44 US per day or $34 US online per month for their prayer to be read. Currently, just four churches are enlisted on the site. Gandul.info reported yesterday that the Romanian Orthodox church, to which more than 85 per cent of Romanians belong, did not approve the move, warning it could lead to laziness.

Despite his abdominal and pectoral supremacy, Canadian-born Ryan Reynolds says he’d still like to think he can encompass ‘some sort of an average Joe’ NED EHRBAR

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

If people could be bound by anti-trust laws, Ryan Reynolds might find himself on the business end of some serious litigation. Between Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity, Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Hal Jordan in this summer’s Green Lantern, the sitcom star-turned-hard bodied leading man has created a superhero monopoly. Sitting down to chat with the actor, one has to ask, what makes Reynolds

so superhero-y? “Well, first of all, Hannibal King is not a superhero,” Reynolds deadpans with his signature sardonic wit. “He’s a human being who bleeds and dies if you stab him. Deadpool is kind of an anti-hero, not a superhero. In fact, he’d probably kill you if you called him a superhero. Green Lantern — now that’s a superhero,” he grins. Evasive answers aside, the 34-year-old Canadian has undeniably become one of Hollywood’s go-to action idols, a distinction Reynolds shrugs off with

charming humility. “I’d like to think that I can encompass some sort of an average Joe,” he offers. “That’s what [Green Lantern] is. This ring selected this guy for reasons totally baffling to him and everyone around him, for an unbelievable, extraordinary task. But it could be anyone.” His co-stars might beg to differ. “He’s a great superhero, but, specifically, he’s a great Green Lantern,” explains Blake Lively, who plays Carol Ferris, Hal’s contentious love interest. “Green Lantern is a per-

son who is a strong, capable man, but he’s also very human and he gets by on his charms. Having someone like Ryan play this character, who has such a heart, humanity and incredible likability, who’s disarmingly charming and witty — you really need that.” Peter Sarsgaard, who plays the evil, bulbousheaded Dr. Hector Hammond, adds, “I think it’s a kind of honesty. There are a lot of good actors who always seem like they’ve got a card face down somewhere that they’re not

‘I’ve never courted fame’: Mark Strong RICHARD CROUSE

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

When I tell Mark Strong, the handsome English actor with a jaw line perfectly suited to his last name, that he is almost unrecognizable as the alien enforcer Sinestro in the new Green Lantern movie, he is chuffed. “Good,” he says. “I miss the fact that I can’t be somebody that people don’t know. I wish that

people would encounter Sinestro and say, ‘Who is that guy?’ Because to blend into the characters dates back to my theatre roots. In drama school I played the 75-year-old character of Moses in Sheridan’s The School for Scandal, aged 24. The transformation is the thing I enjoyed most of all.” But what kind of movie star likes to go unrecognized? Surely not someone who has starred in Guy

Ritchie and Ridley Scott movies and acted opposite the likes of Robert Downey Jr. and Leonardo DiCaprio? “The truth is I’ve never courted fame,” he says. “I don’t have a PR machine working for me. I don’t go to premieres and openings that I’m not involved in. I don’t do interviews or try and get on the telly just to keep my face around.” Strong, an alum of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre

School, doesn’t buy into the North American idea of stardom. “It is a job,” he says. “That’s what we’re trained for. I think the fact that we have hundreds of years of tradition of acting in Britain… it isn’t exotic [to us]. It is a craft. For me film is exotic.”

The not-so-secret formula of J.J. Abrams

E E! T T IN E C MA SE

The hottest producer/writer/director in Hollywood just knocked another one out of the park with Super 8 But what is it about J.J. Abrams’ projects that make them so irresistible? We consider the key traits Viral campaigns

Government conspiracies In Abrams’ universe, Big Brother is always up to something, and usually it isn’t for the benefit of mankind. In Super 8, the government seems to be hiding something from the people of Lillian, who experience increasingly strange occurrences in their little town.

Updating the classics

Weird creatures Based usually on a combination of insect/ protean mass, the creatures that pop up in Abrams’ monster movies are huge, creepy and the kind of thing that makes you itchy the minute you think of it.

Abrams is the king of hidden clues, which he embeds within viral websites that fans scour for hints. Dharma Initiative commercials ran during airings of Lost and directed viewers to a website where fans could peruse job listings and mysterious explanations of the organization’s mission.

Abrams re-energized Star Trek, a franchise that had lost its cool factor, revamping it for the new millennium with a punchy script and sexual tension.

Secrecy One of the magnetic draws to an Abrams project is the tantalizingly minimal amount of details he’ll let leak. Similar to the mystery surrounding Super 8 co-producer Steven Spielberg’s work, many of their new film’s plot points were kept under wraps right up until it hit theatres.

Fergie isn’t pregnant, just really likes tacos Black Eyed Peas star denies baby rumours

Admits to bad eating habits ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie says she understands where all the rumors about her baby-making plans are coming from. “I gain and lose weight everywhere from the thighs up. I think people think that I’m pregnant sometimes because my weight fluctuates,” she tells Allure magazine. “My problem is my discipline. I see a Jack in the Box or a DelTaco, and I will impulsively want it. I’m a work in progress in that area.” Fergie said earlier this year that she’s putting her solo career on hold so she can spend time with her hubby, Josh Duhamel.

Talking points

Beckham’s are Desperate for a godmother WHAT AN HONOUR. Victo-

ria Beckham has everything in order for the arrival of her and David Beckham’s first daughter, including the baby’s godmother. The Beckhams have reportedly asked Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria to do the honours, according to the Sun. “Victoria ran it past David and they both want Eva,” a source says. “She’s extremely honoured.” METRO

Because it’s one of the largest cities in the world, Mexico City is chock-full of fascinating history, monuments and architec-

ture. It would take days, or even weeks, to take in the highlights. That is, if you don’t have a Segway! These high tech puppies can really move, and are really the perfect way to take in the sites in a huge place like this. On a sunny Sunday, after paying a small rental fee, I found myself zipping down famous Reforma Avenue while proudly standing on board my cool new selfbalancing electric vehicle. It’s amazing how these

machines can zip down sidewalks, streets and alleys without the restrictions of a car or motorcycle. Before long, I had passed the historic and beautiful Palace of Fine Arts, before circling the winged goddess on top of the super tall Monument of Independence. Another great thing about touring the city on a Segway is all the admiring looks, and even cheers you tend to get from onlookers. For a brief moment, I

felt like a star. That feeling abruptly ended when I hit a curb at a crowded intersection and awkwardly stumbled off my machine, prompting a few hurtful snickers. After climbing back on, I pressed on to the Museum of Anthropology, which in itself can be an all-day affair. Here is where many Aztec preColumbian artifacts can be seen, including the most impressive original Stone of the Sun, better known

as the Aztec calendar. I ended my Segway tour in the huge historical center of the city known as the Zocalo or main square. This is one of the largest open squares in the world, surrounded by beautiful architecture. Summer is actually the perfect time for a Segway tour of this great city. The hottest, most humid time in Mexico City is early spring. July and August are cooler and more comfortable, perfect for taking in the sites.

History Freight traffic in the area began on street level in 1847, delivering dairy, meat and produce to factories and packing plants on the West Side near the Hudson River. The trains crashed so often with traffic that 10th Avenue was dubbed Death Avenue. The tracks were elevated in 1934.

New Yorkers enjoy the second section of the High Line.

The last train went through in 1980, carrying three carloads of frozen turkeys.

Speedy meets healthy Rice and noodle pilaf with edamame and grilled shrimp made easy Beautiful spring weather and longer days often mean a good, homecooked supper falls by the wayside. Who wants to be in the kitchen, right? But there are plenty of shortcuts that can help you get a healthy meal on the table in no time. This rice and noodle pilaf with edamame and grilled shrimp can be on the table in 35 minutes.

3 4

Preparation:

1

Light a charcoal fire or heat a gas grill to high.

2

In bowl, whisk 10 ml (2 tsp) olive oil and lemon juice. Add shrimp, toss to coat, then set aside.

5

In saucepan over medium, heat remaining 15 ml (1 tbsp) oil. Add onion and bacon and sauté until onion becomes translucent, about 2 minutes. Add noodles and rice and cook, stirring, until noodles begin to brown. Add wine and cook, stirring constantly, until wine has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add edamame, broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, thread shrimp onto 4 metal skewers. Season both

Ingredients: • 15 ml (1 tbsp) plus 10 ml (2 tsp) olive oil, divided • 30 ml (2 tbsp) lemon juice • 500 g (1 lb) large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined • 1 small red onion, chopped • 60 g (2 oz) finely chopped Canadian bacon (about 75 ml/1/3 cup) • 175 ml (3/4 cup) fine egg

noodles, broken up • 175 ml (3/4 cup) instant brown rice • 50 ml (1/4 cup) dry white wine • 250 ml (1 cup) frozen shelled edamame • 375 ml (1 1/2 cups) reduced-sodium chicken broth • Salt and ground black pepper • 15 ml (1 tbsp) chopped fresh dill, more to garnish

sides with salt and pepper. Grill until shrimp are pink and firm, about 1 1/2 minutes per side.

6

Start to finish: 35 mins. Servings: 4

for 3 minutes. Stir in dill and season with pepper. Serve pilaf topped with shrimp on or off the skewers. Garnish with additional dill.

Remove pilaf from heat and let stand, covered,

Grilled scallops or chicken would also work in this dish.

Jamie Oliver chops it up — literally The chef offers up one of his kids’ favourite chopped salads of fennel, romaine, endive and smoked salmon

Oliver’s creation makes four servings.

Want to get the kids to embrace salad? Jamie Oliver, star of the Emmy awardwinning ABC show Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, says variety, creativity and plenty of chopping are key. “Chopped salads are really easy to make and there are so many different options you can come up with. It’s a great shortcut to just chop everything up on a board, mixing as you go, then throw the dressing on top, and bring it to the table,” Oliver said.

And while plenty of kids like salad only for the dressing, Oliver urges a light touch. “Dressings are important as they make salads more fun to eat, but you only need to add a little bit at a time,” he said.

Preparation:

1

On large cutting board, chop carrot, fennel and radishes. Bring it all to the centre of board and continue chopping and mixing together. Add lettuce and endive

leaves, continue chopping. When everything is well chopped, assemble it in a mound at the centre of the board.

2 3

Slice salmon into small pieces, mix into salad. Make a well in middle and drizzle in olive oil, lemon juice and pinch of salt and pepper. Mix up so everything gets dressed, sprinkle with chopped dill, and serve. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SHREE GOVINDARAJAN TALENTEGG.CA

I graduated from the University of Alberta a couple of months ago, in April 2011. However, the decisions I made about my next steps started much sooner than that. As soon as my last year at began, I felt the pressure of having to figure out my next move. As a marketing major, my path was not as easily determined as my friends in accounting, engineering, or law. It seemed that all of my friends, no matter their faculty or major, had a job (or at least a few leads) lined up. Upon their advice, I began searching online for my dream job, which was elusive at best. After a few months of searching, I realized that part of the reason I was having no luck in finding that “perfect” job was that I didn’t really want to find it. I knew that if I found a job at a company and began working full-time after graduation, I would never leave. I would be a loyal em-

ployee, I’d work hard and I’d hopefully be promoted after a few months or years, beginning my stagnancy in life at the age of 21. I knew I wanted to travel more and see the world, but a simple two-month trip to Europe before settling down didn’t feel like enough to me. I wanted to actually experience life in another culture. This is where AIESEC Edmonton came in. I joined AIESEC, a global internship program entirely run by students, in my first year of university.

Where Shree is now

While I am not going on an internship with the organization (yet), my leadership roles and understanding of the AIESEC brand helped me land a job internally – I will be working in Sao Paulo until July 2012 as the National Vice President of Communications for AIESEC Brazil. I am excited for this next step in my life as this role will help me gain experience that is directly related to my desired future in Marketing and I’ll be living in an ever-growing BRIC country for a year.

Being offered both leadership and exchange opportunities with the organization, I opted for the leadership side for three and a half years of my university education as I truly enjoy helping others succeed. As AIESEC Edmonton’s president in my last year of university, I realized my passion for providing others with the opportunity to go abroad and experience professional opportunities. Student groups and clubs are the best way for students to experience great levels of leadership and management skills. In these situations, they have the opportunity to achieve a certain level of autonomy that might otherwise take years to hold in the workplace.

“At the end of the day, I’ve got to move on with my life. So it wasn't saying that I'm superior or better than anyone else, any man or woman on this planet. I'm not.” MIAMI’S LEBRON JAMES YESTERDAY, CLARIFYING COMMENTS HE MADE AGAINST HIS DETRACTORS AFTER THE HEAT WERE ELIMINATED IN THE NBA FINALS.

Police not expecting Vancouver riot repeat As Vancouver gets ready for the final game of the Stanley Cup playoffs tonight, it does so under the shadow of the events that unfolded the last time the city was involved in the final. It’s been 17 years but images of the Stanley Cup riot of 1994 still haunt the city, where thousands of people went on a rampage following the Canucks’ loss to the New York Rangers. Fans smashed windows, threw bricks and looted downtown stores. Police made 150 arrests in a matter of hours. Another 200 people were injured and Vancouver was left with a legacy of restrictive rules aimed at preventing any embarrassing repeats. But Vancouver police say much has changed since then and, while they’re certainly prepared, they’re not anticipating any violence tonight. “By and large ... things have gone quite well,” Const. Lindsey Houghton said yesterday of the playoffs so far. The B.C. government ordered downtown liquor stores be shut down at 4 p.m. for Game 6, and may do so again tonight. THE CANADIAN PRESS

As of yester$12K day afternoon, ticket seller StubHub had some 420 tickets available for Game 7 from $1,600 US to $12,413, although the number available and price fluctuated.

The playoff struggle ends with Game 7 tonight. Either the Bruins or Canucks will earn the right to hoist the Stanley Cup.

Last stand for Stanley Bruins have outscored Canucks 19-8 through first six games of final One of the strangest Stanley Cup finals anyone can remember is going to end with something everyone can understand: A single game, with everything on the line, winner-take-all. All of the bizarre stats and storylines won’t matter to the Vancouver Canucks or Boston Bruins if they can find a way to win Game 7 at Rogers Arena tonight. Vancouver is coming off Monday’s 5-2 loss — the third beating it endured in Boston — but should be considered the favourite. The Canucks have been virtually unbeatable at home. “To tell you the truth it

Game 7 without Mason Raymond, who suffered a vertebrae compression fracture on a Johnny Boychuk hit early in Game 6. He follows Vancouver’s Dan Hamhuis (undisclosed) and Boston’s Nathan Horton (concussion) in being knocked out of the final.

MacLean takes over from Cory Clouston, who was fired April 9 after the Senators missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. The 53-yearold is the team’s ninth head coach since the modern-day franchise debuted in 1992-93. Clouston guided the Senators to a post-season appearance in his first full season in charge. However, the Senators took a step backwards in 2010-11. THE CANADIAN PRESS

They scored 17 goals in Boston and just two in Vancouver. “We are very well aware of how we’ve played on the road the last three games in Vancouver,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “We’ve created ourselves another opportunity and it’s up to us to take advantage of it.” “But we’ve got to be hungrier than we have been the last three times in Vancouver.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Retuned suspension

Interior

Engine

Dodge has concentrated on turning the Avenger into a better driving car by retuning the suspension for improved ride comfort and reduced body lean while cornering. Additionally, the ride height has been slightly lowered (more at the front than at the rear), steering precision has been improved and the distance separating the left and right wheels (track) has been widened by about an inch.

The previous Avenger’s hard plastic dash and door panels have been replaced with soft-touch materials. In fact, the dash plus the gauge pod, vent openings and steering wheel are now borderline sumptuous. And that also goes for the new seats that come with added bolster support in front. The 60:40 split-folding rear bench continues to fold nearly flat as before, and also includes a passthrough opening for transporting longer items.

Pop open the hood and the 173-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder base powerplant returns, but is now attached to the sub-frame using improved engine mounts to reduce vibration. The newly optional 283-horsepower 3.6-litre V6 can now be had in nearly every Chrysler and Dodge model. Along with delivering close to 50 more horsepower than the previous 235horse 3.5-litre V6, the 3.6 is also much more fuel efficient in city driving.

Ford Fusion Base price: $21,550 Popular four-door offered with manual gearbox, plus fuelsipping hybrid version.

Honda Accord Base price: $26,350 Easy on gas plus excellent road manners makes this a fun-to-drive sedan.

The Dodge Avenger needed to step it up a notch until Fiat, which controls Chrysler, began injecting its own platforms into the brand. That might be a year or more away, though.

Back with Avengeance MALCOLM GUNN

DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA WHEELBASE MEDIA

Newly preened, prepped and refreshed, the Dodge Avenger is now ready to step back into the mid-size sedan spotlight. It has been a tough road for the Avenger. The current version that was introduced for the 2008 model year never really caught on with sedan shoppers and was clearly outclassed by higher-quality offerings from Chevrolet, Ford, Toyota, Honda and others. Given that North American sales in this segment are expected to top two million units this year, it’s vital that the Avenger, along with the similarlysized Chrysler 200, get bet-

ter, and fast. Certainly the future appears brighter now that the automaker’s Fiat-controlled management has updated the Avenger as well as most of the automaker’s other offerings with new style, improved cabins and up-to-date powertrains. At $21,500, the base Avenger now sells for about $2,900 less than the previous comparable model, something that Chrysler likely felt it had to do to gain some muchneeded traction with potential buyers. With all of the acrossthe-board improvements, the Avenger’s styling still might take some getting used to, but the rest of the package is right on the money.

Dodge Avenger

Chevrolet Malibu Base price: $25,450 Smooth-running I4 and V6 engines have helped Malibu’s popularity. The upcoming R/T model will have sportier suspension tuning, larger wheels and a tougher look about it.

Regardless of the look on the outside, this is where you live. Dodge gets a pat on the back for a major upgrade in materials and design detail.

What you should know about the 2011 Dodge Avenger: Types: Four-door, frontwheel-drive mid-size sedan. Engine (hp): 2.4-litre DOHC I4 (173); 3.6-litre DOHC V6 (283). Transmission: Four-speed automatic; six-speed automatic (opt. on I4, std. on V6). Mileage: L/100 km (city/hwy) 9.9/6.7 (2.4, 4 AT). Points: Base four-cylinder engine lags behind competition in fuel economy, but V6 rating is far more impressive.

Veracruz loved for value and luxury TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Though it may not be a well-known model, Hyundai’s crossover is a solid bet

SECOND GEAR

What’s the 4-1-1 Model: 2007 to 2011 Hyundai Veracruz Vehicle type: Crossover SUV

JUSTIN PRITCHARD DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

Hyundai’s Veracruz hit the Canadian market for the 2007 model year with the goal of putting an affordable luxury crossover on the scene for thousands less than a comparable machine from Germany or Japan. As the range-topping ute from the Korean automaker, Veracruz offered up top levels of comfort and style, alongside a competitive warranty and honest pricing. All models got a 3.8-litre V6 with 260 horsepower and a six-speed automatic

transmission. Most had All Wheel Drive (AWD), though a lower-priced, front-drive Veracruz was available. Look for features like power memory seating in heated leather, a sunroof, automatic lights, automatic climate control, multimedia audio connectivity, a 6CD changer, a rear-seat entertainment console and Bluetooth. An intelligent key system, auto-dimming mirror and power tailgate were al-

so on board. What Owners Like

Owners say a combination of quality, styling, interior appearance, safety ratings and a great driving position attracted them to the Veracruz, while attractive pricing and Hyundai’s warranty coverage helped seal the deal. A smooth ride, overall comfort and plenty of power are also reported, and the soundsystem and power tailgate are also a hit.

What Owners Dislike

Complaints include limited third-row seating space, which is a standard gripe in most three-row crossover models. Some owners do report a rough or jarring ride, particularly on models with larger wheels and on rougher roads. A few owners claim the ice-blue displays are difficult to read at night, too. Common Issues

Start by inspecting all of the Veracruz’s options and

features for proper operation. Some owners have reported problems getting the keyfob to open the power tailgate, a CD player that won’t eject discs, or a faulty “resume” button for the cruise control system. Ensure these features all work properly — and check the automatic climate control, air conditioner, entertainment console, power seats and all lights, too. Check the taillamps for signs of cracking, and note

that driveability issues related to the engine in terms of “sputtering” or lumpy power delivery are likely caused by failing oxygen sensors. A check-engine light may be illuminated if this is the case. On AWD models, park on some sand or a similar low-traction surface and accelerate rapidly from a stand-still, ensuring there are no unwelcomed noises or “clunks” as the AWD system engages in response to wheelspin. The Verdict

Though information is somewhat sparse, the Veracruz looks to be a solid performer with no systematic or glaring problems reported by its small but largely-happy owner community. Check out Justin’s video car reviews online at youtube.com/mr2pritch.

CAMAROS FLOCK TO OSHAWA, BREAK GUINNESS RECORD

B

As Guinness World Records go, it was not as wacky as most. Nothing like, Most TShirts Worn at Once (227), Greatest Distance by Paddling a Hand-Powered Bathtub (145.6 km), or Fastest 100 Metre Hurdles Wearing Swim Fins (22.35 seconds).

ut it’s a Guinness World Record nonetheless, or at least it will be, as soon as the Guinness people get around to confirming it. Because last weekend, 587 Camaros were strategically parked in the big parking lot at the Oshawa assembly plant. New 2011 Camaros, built in the plant across the street, were put in place to form

a gigantic Chevrolet “bowtie.” Camaro owners of current and previous generation models were then invited to place their cars around the “bowtie,” to form a gigantic frame. Net result: The World’s Largest Car Mosaic. The previous record was 485 vehicles. There were lots of Camaros around, because GM threw a party for them and their owners. “In order to thank Canada and America for

AUTO PILOT

“As soon as we found out about this, we talked to Dan Hermer, the (Camaro) plant manager, and thought about opening the plant in conjunction with the Ontario Camaro Club’s Nationals. It worked out perfectly.” The Nationals are the Ontario Camaro Club’s big annual blowout party, which includes social gettogethers, vendor shows, best-in-show competitions and cruises. The club usually holds the event in Niagara Falls,

loaning us money, to keep us in business, GM decided to open all of our plants to the public,” says Scott Settlemire, GM’s manager for Special Vehicles and Special Events.

Ont. “When GM invited us to come back here this year, we said, of course,” remarked club president Dale Oldham. “Why would you not want to be involved here? It’s a dream come true.” While many of the Camaros on the premises this weekend were from the Ontario club, the homecoming festivities were open to anyone, and Camaros and Camaro fans came from all over Canada and the U.S.
